I have spent four days in Glacier National Park, Montana. I decided to stay at the East side of the National Park. I have visited the West side a couple of times and I had never stayed on the East. I was very happy about my decision. It was breathtaking. Both sides of the park are joined by the "Going to the Sun" highway, which has too much snow to be open this time of the year. I stayed at the Many Glaciers Campground, which was visited by moose, deer and bear daily.
He estado en el parque nacional de Glacier en Montana los últimos cuatro días. Este parque es sin duda uno de mis favoritos en los EEUU. Nada más llegar me dio la bienvenida un par de osos, que manera más perfecta de empezar mi semana en el parque.
I was welcomed to the park by our friends the Grizzly bears (bear encounter three and four). This time I could see them from the side of the road.
The second day I decided to hike to Cracker Lake. It took me a little under eight hours to go up and down, it really kicked my butt, but it was worth it. You decide based on the pictures.
El día después decidí subir a uno de los lagos de altura. Me metí una buena paliza pero mereció la pena.

I really enjoyed this side of Glacier, it was a great time of the year to be here, flowers everywhere, no problem getting campsites, a little bit of weather but nothing that stopped me from enjoying it.
Glacier National Park still rates as one of the most beautiful parks in the US, and the luck of buses and crowds (at least on the East Side) makes it more appealing than most National Parks.
I am in Calgary right now visiting my friends Steve and Basia and I will be moving north towards Banff and Jasper by the end of the week.
Ahora estoy en casa de Steve y Basia en Calgary. Estaré aquí un par de días y ya sigo hacia el norte, cada día un poco más cerca de Alaska.
Life is good!
